Verified Buyer Reviewed by BBMagpie from Oregon on Tuesday, July 1, 2014Held up over a one-week raft trip of normal use: waves and heavy rain. Easy to open & close, folds together well. The air valve seems unecessary. I got two of these bags and on one an inside disc on the valve broke off, exposing the innards of the valve, but it didn't affect the way the valve functioned (open the twister on the outside to let air out if you want; close to keep water out of the bag). Didn't leak at all.
Used one of these bags to hold a mandolin in a hard case (30 x 13 x 5") with a small blanket for padding. Was just the right size to roll up with several twists to make a good seal.
Reviewed by Landscaping My Yard from North Carolina on Monday, March 24, 2014I absolutely LOVE Hyalite drybags! I did a preliminary pack to get ready for a canyoneering trip and noticed that the purge valve on the dry bags made them amazing! So I used the 25 L for my sleeping bag and when you get all the air out and seal the purge valve you're left with nothing but bag...NO air (probably could have fit in a 15L bag...that's on the way). The vacuum achieved prevents the need for compression straps...it remains compressed since no air can get back in. I combined my oversized sleeping bag and thermarest pillow into one sack and it fit into my lower sleeping bag backpack compartment with enough room for Teva sandals on top. This also worked with the larger bag. I spread out my inflatable sleeping pad and tent/fly then added clothing etc. (ensuring heaviest/dense gear toward body)...and pushed/rolled out the air. It slid right into my pack and made my life super easy. I can throw my pack into a river swim across with it, then get out knowing all contents are perfectly dry. I realize packs within packs add weight...but in this case they add waterproofing and an added vacuum packing bonus.
